I read a lot in bath (& in the loo). And I think I remember almost everything I have read at these 2 places, even better than in my study room. It's almost become a compulsion over the years. If I couldn't get a book or a magazine, I'd pick up the bottles and start reading the ingredients, where it was made and who bottled it etc.
I want to have a shelf in my bath where I place the books I like reading no matter whether I've read it before or whether old/new. My partner gets upset with this habit but I'm not the one to give it up!
Yuck! It always grosses me out when people do that because you shouldn't touch things like books until after you've washed your hands. I'm sure you could only hold the book in one hand and do everything else with the other but I don't trust people to bother with that when it's an uphill battle to get them to wash their hands as it is. My kids grasp the basics of hygiene but weirdly lots of adults don't.
Yes. Yes. Yes :) Bath time is an EVENT for me. Bubblebath, a glass of wine or champagne and my kindle. You gotta have your kindle or a book while bathing! I have a bath every night & read. It's my ME time. Perhaps that's indulgent? I'm a mermaid. (I love her orange toe polish in the picture btw)
